We live in an on demand world. Consumers are purchasing online and want products now- even fresh groceries. Retailers must determine the level of service to provide the customer, and how best to provide that service. Whole Foods Market, America's Healthiest Grocery Store, has partnered with Instacart, an on demand service, as its national grocery delivery provider. A number of factors were considered prior to forming this strategic partnership- but to what extent did Instacart's proprietary technology weigh in? This discussion will review how Whole Foods Market and Instacart's partnership uses technology to transform food retail and provide on demand groceries quickly and conveniently.
